Hi, all!
I instaled Mac OS - Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on my laptop - Packard Bell Eastnote NJ65.
Everything is OK, but Wi-Fi and Ethernet:
My original Wi-FI card was Intel 5100 , but I saw there have not kext for it and I changed it with Broadcom BCM 4312. I tryed every kext what i found but after reboot everytime I have problem to boot OS. I have kernel panic or message to restart laptop.
In the install disk I have fix for my card which I installed, but when I start Mac I haven't WiFi. When I try to make new connections in Network - there have not option for wireless, just 6 to 4; PPoe and VPN.

The same problem with my Ethernet connection - I can not start it. It's Broadcom 5784M.

Can somebody help me? May be I do something wrong, but I don't know what.

Thank you very much!

Regards
T. Lapkov

Here is a kext and some instructions for the Broadcom 5784M: http://www.insanelym...ndpost&p=963461

When you installed the kexts for the BCM 4312, did you repair permissions correctly? Find the utility Kext Helper b7 or something to help you install the kexts and get the permissions right.

Thank you, rlf!
I tryed before with this Magnat2's script, but I haven't success,now I will try to install the script, but everytime when I install something after that i can't boot Mac Os.
When I instal some kext I using Kext Helper B7, but may be somewhere I doing something wrong.
If I have kext in the install CD why I can not use the wireless conections? - in the Extra/Extensions folder I have Broadcom fix and there I found my card ID and vendor ID.
Is Kext helper enough for repair permisions, I tryed to repair permisions and with Disk utility?

What install DVD did you use?

From what I can tell, 10.6.3 is already set up to work with a standard BCM 4312 card. It shouldn't need any fixes or different kexts.

Thank you for the rlf's help.
With his help we added in <string>14e4,4315</string> in AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext's info.plist but still have no wireless.
Does anyone have any idea what else can be done?

Try KextWizard for your kext installs. Very user friendly GUI and can also repair permissions and rebuild kernel caches on S/L/E and E/E. Try http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=1538 in E/E, OR http://www.osx86.net...?do=file&id=892 in S/L/E and use option in KextWizard to back up any replaced kexts. If you get a kernel panic reboot with -x and run the kextwizard utilities again. If needed, boot -s for safe mode(command line only) and with some basic command line skills, you can remove an kext that is causing kernel panic and preventing booting to desktop. Also always boot with -v (verbose when first setting thins up (or always) so if you get a kernel panic you can see why, and also see what is/isn't loading properly. It won't look just like a bunch of text after a while and if not now, down the road you'll be able to spot possible problems easily. But if you always just watch a spinning wheel and apple logo, you'll never see a thing. And if that doesn't help, at least we tried:)

Or, monoprice has usb wifi adapters for like 5$, just make sure you check compatibility b4 you buy

Does your computer have a WiFi button? This is what the manual for your computer says:

Turning On/Off a WiFi Network Connection
Most computers feature a ‘WiFi’ button that turns the network connection on or off. If your computer does not feature a ‘WiFi’ button, you may turn your wireless network on or off, or control what is shared over the network with the network management options.

Just to b sure, did u try adding manualy to network preferences? go to system preferences and to network tab, then hit the + button in the network list and see if it shows in the list of connections to add.

Hi, eep357! When I go there I have nothing now, because I reinstaled Iatkos soon. But when i try to add - I make location and after tha on "+" i have to choose 3 type connection PPoE, 6 to 4 and VPN- I have not airport or wireless. I try with that Broadcom.fix also, but nothing. I put Airport.script on the top bar but it says airport card is not detected.
For the ethernet I also try some kexts but nothing.
May be somhere I do something wrong, but I really don't know what.
